Robbery Charges in California Are “Strike” Felonies

Robbery is the felonious taking of personal property in the possession of another person, from his or her personal and immediate presence, and against his or her will through the use of force or fear.

Robbery is always a felony and cannot be pled or charged as a misdemeanor.

First degree Robbery is punishable in state prison for 3, 4 or 6 years. However, if the defendant acts in concert with two or more people to commit the Robbery in an inhabited dwelling (including a motor coach or vessel) the punishment is 3, 6 or 9 years in prison.

Attempted Robbery is also punishable by a state prison commitment.

In some cases probation may be offered if the court finds that it is in the interests of justice to grant probation instead of prison.

As you can see Robbery is one of the more serious crimes that can be committed in California, and Robbery is typically charged as a “strike felony.” Therefore, it is essential to deal with the case seriously and appropriately.
